An initial investigation revealed that after the jet had returned from a training mission, it was waiting at the predetermined point between the landing strip and the subterranean bunker where the planes are stored. At a certain point, for reasons still unknown, the aircraft lost its braking capability due to a failure of one of the hydraulic drive systems.

The jet began to ride down the runway and in order to prevent a collision with another plane that was located right ahead and crashing into the groundcrew that was operating in the area, the pilot managed to divert it to a nearby channel. The plane was then taken for inspection.

The IDF Spokesperson's Unit issued a response, emphasizing the malfunction has since been fixed and the jet returned to full activity.
